A two-way player for the Bulldogs, Schunk ended the 2018 season as the team’s closer and has served in that capacity this spring in addition to being the team’s starting third baseman. Most pro teams prefer him as a hitter, however, despite his lack of clear, standout tools. Schunk is solid across the board and is having a career offensive season in 2019. Through his first 47 games this spring, Schunk led Georgia in batting average (.339) and slugging percentage (.556). He’s also hit a career-high nine home runs after hitting a combined four homers during his freshman and sophomore seasons. Schunk is a solid hitter and could project as an average bat with solid-average power, but he’s never walked much throughout his college career and he didn’t hit for much power in a 29-game stint in the Cape Cod League last summer. Defensively, Schunk is a safe bet to stick at third base, where he has good athleticism and a strong arm. On the mound, Schunk has a four-pitch mix with a fastball that has been up to 95 mph and solid strike-throwing ability, but his upside is higher with a bat. He could be a everyday third baseman at the next level if he can continue to increase his power potential moving forward.
